April 29: Engage St. Pete

RE/MAX Metro Tampa Bay – along with All Children’s Hospital and ASI – is sponsoring the second annual Engage St. Pete, to be held at the Museum of Fine Arts on April 29.

The purpose of now annual Engage St. Pete is to introduce ambitious, civically interested, fresh-thinking professionals with the individuals and organizations that make things happen in St. Petersburg. The first Engage St. Pete last year drew 300+ activists, leaders, and influencers.

Organizers are expecting nearly double the attendance this year. RE/MAX Metro’s Bekah Rush is serving on this year’s planning committee. “When I first found out about this and met the people that pull this thing together, it was a no-brainer,” said Rush. “We’re getting a large group of today’s leaders and tomorrow’s leaders in the same room, to make connections and to talk about opportunities to help each other within our community – that’s fantastic.” 

“This is exactly what RE/MAX Metro wants to be doing,” said Metro’s Marcus Martin, an original booster of the program. “We have such a cool and interesting comingling of perspectives and generations here – it’s part of our uniqueness – and this annual event embodies that vibe.”

WHY:  To facilitate connections and action among professionals and community leaders

WHEN:  Wednesday, April 29, 2015, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.

WHERE:  Museum of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Drive NE, St. Petersburg 33701

Among several business and community leaders serving as panelists, Metro’s David Vann is a panelist for the Development breakout session (attendees have the option of attending two of five 40-minute breakout sessions).

Vann’s varied background includes the spectrum of property buying, selling, and investment; as well as education in Engineering and Physics, and particularly extensive experience in project management and negotiation strategy. He’s lived in St. Pete for over a decade and is expected to speak about investing in St. Pete property, new developments/construction, business relocation, and what the latest housing boom means for the future of St. Petersburg and its residents.
